About Program

As a High School Assistant, you will provide additional support to students who are being sponsored through high school. This role involves assisting the students in revising and improving their English. You will also be helping students maintain contact with their sponsors around the
world who they must contact in English. The role also involves promoting our sponsorship program to potential donors, through social media and making direct contact with appropriate businesses. You will be working in a high school as well as in the office.

This position is available throughout the Nicaraguan academic year (February – November) and requires a minimum time commitment of 6 weeks. Volunteers in this role should have at least advanced level English, as well as at least post-intermediate level Spanish. If language is a barrier
there are numerous Spanish schools in the vicinity.

Consider your impact: Volunteering abroad can be a rewarding experience for both volunteers and local communities, and at Go Overseas, we believe all volunteers should have the resources to make informed decisions about the type of volunteer project they want to partake in. However, despite best intentions, some organizations offering placements in orphanages may unknowingly place children in danger. You can read about the potential dangers of orphanage volunteering here.
